Irving Kayton, Esq. is the founder of the Patent Resources Group, Inc. (PRG), a business organization that markets patent-related training. Professor Kayton is an Emeritus Law Professor at the George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, Virginia. He previously served as a Professor at The George Washington University Law Center.[citation needed]

He received his B.A. in Mathematics, with distinction, from Cornell University, and his J.D. from New York University School of Law, his LL.M. from Columbia University and a Doctor of Juridical Science (J.S.D.) from Columbia Law School as well.[citation needed]

In January 2006, Professor Kayton retired from his law practice[1] to his home in Free Union, Virginia. He sold PRG to Landon IP, Inc., a company that sells patent-related services to the legal community.[citation needed]

PRG continues under the academic direction of Mr. Kayton's former colleague, Paul Gardner. PRG is a provider of continuing legal education (CLE) and draws faculty from several intellectual property law firms. The company educates approximately 3,000 law students, engineers, scientists, patent attorneys, and patent agents each year. Its classroom patent bar review course is held in several locations in the United States as well as through video conferencing. In addition PRG has academic partnerships with Management Forum (UK) and Chizai Corporation (JPN) whereby European and Japanese patent courses are taught in the United States by those entities.[citation needed]

The company's Advanced Patent Law Courses are taught three times per year: in Florida in April, in Washington DC in August, and on the West Coast in October. In August 2009, the company moved its offices to Alexandria, Virginia, where it established a training center close to Washington, DC.[citation needed]
